Newborn Baby

My mom is a goofball who likes to pretend I'm still a newborn baby! As you can see by the potty behind us, I'm a very, very advanced newborn who happens to be potty trained. And have teeth, and can walk & run! Oh well, whatever makes her happy!

Family Time!

Saturday morning we headed over to Auntie Mel & Uncle Mike's house for a day spent with family. It's always so awesome to spend time with my cousins!

Auntie Mel totally surprised me with this race track that had been a gift to Madelyn when she was younger. I'm loving it & play with it all the time. Thank you, Auntie Mel!

We played outside, ate an early dinner & just enjoyed being together.

Riding bikes was a lot of fun & I learned to pedal better than I've ever done before!

Of course Uncle Mike had to get a little taste of the belly!

Our dirt ball bodies took a dip in the tub since we were covered from head to toe from all the fun! I love my family!

Ladies Man

Last night I was able to spend some time with two beautiful gals, Leah & Avery! Am I lucky or what?

Avery will be a big sister in two to three short weeks & she's very excited to meet her baby brother, Brooks.

My list of friends just keeps growing & growing! I'll be welcoming baby Taylor into my entourage in about two months & I cannot wait to meet her!

Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Saturday afternoon we headed out to a Yankees spring training game which just so happened to be my very first baseball game! How exciting!

My mommy & daddy weren't sure how I'd do since I had to miss my nap & it appeared that I might be coming down with a cold.

But I was an absolute champ & had a really great time! It was much more enjoyable after about a half hour when the sun moved behind us & stopped glaring in my eyes.

Most of the game I sat on Mommy or Daddy's lap, but I also took a stroll with Daddy & explored the park. Toward the later part of the game I moved to the ground where I could push my cars around & spread out.

And then I started getting really sleepy! Hey, remember, I missed my nap!

Laying on a concrete floor isn't exactly the cleanliest, most comfortable thing in the world but desperate times call for desperate measures! And Mommy was nice enough to let me lay my head on her tank top.

For not even being two & a half, I was very well behaved & all the elderly people around us commented on this at the end of the game! Unfortunately my cold is now full-blown so I'll be staying home from school tomorrow because of a fever. Hopefully I feel better very soon!

Potty Excellence

I've been doing an amazing job of using the potty these days! I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I'm rather proud of myself!

My daycare deserves a lot of the credit since they encouraged my mom & dad to start sending in me in undies rather than a diaper. It was strange for them at first & maybe they didn't think I was ready but I sure proved them wrong!

I wear a diaper to bed & for nap but otherwise I'm in undies all day long. The biggest hurdle for my parents was taking me on an outing in undies, but I handled it like a champ. We spent the entire morning/early afternoon out & about last weekend & I never had an issue since I used the potty at McDonald's & Home Depot with no problems. Sunday I went to church in undies & spent the afternoon at Auntie Lo Lo & Uncle Josh's house & had dinner at a restaurant sans diaper.

I really surprised my mom tonight when I was in my pajamas & nighttime diaper watching Cars before bed.... Mommy was in the kitchen cleaning up & the next thing she heard was my little potty chiming its pee-pee jingle. When she came into the living room, she was met with the image you see in all of these pictures. I had taken my pj pants & diaper off & gotten on the potty with no prompting! Awe yeah, that's how I roll! And the biggest surprise of all? When my dad got me up in the morning a couple of days ago, my diaper was bone dry. You might not think this is a big deal, but I normally pee like an elephant during the night & my diaper is usually bursting at the seams! I'm becoming such a mature boy all of a sudden!
